A library and information center focusing on disability and rehabilitation research
Introduction
NARIC can connect you to the agencies, organizations, and online resources you need to find benefits, services, and support.
Description
NARIC is a library and information center funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR), US Department of Health and Human Services. We serve to connect researchers, rehabilitation professionals, administrators, educators, and people with disabilities to the research and resources they need to be fully successful in their endeavors.
General Information
We are a library and information center focusing on disability and rehabilitation research. For the past 30 years NARIC staff members have been dedicated to providing direct, personal, and high-quality information services to anyone throughout the country. As a leader in providing interactive information to the disability and rehabilitation community, NARIC's Web site continues this tradition by putting the information into the hands of the users through online publications, searchable databases, and timely reference and referral data.

We encourage you to post your questions to our wall. We will do our best to respond with appropriate information or resources within one business day. We cannot provide diagnoses, recommendations for treatment, or other medical information. However, we will connect you with organizations, agencies, and websites which may help answer your questions.

We hope our members will comment on and discuss the items we post. Please be aware that comments are monitored by NARIC staff. We may remove a comment if it is deemed offensive or inappropriate.

The contents of NARIC's Google+ page were developed under a contract from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (contract #ED-OSE-10-0074). However, those contents do not necessarily represent the policy of NIDILRR, and you should not assume endorsement by the Federal Government.
